The majority of our children live in Silverstone and the feeder villages of Abthorpe and Wappenham.  However, parents from a much wider area actively choose to send their children to Silverstone CE Primary based on our ‘family feel’, good results and a positive school ethos.

How to Apply for a School Place at Silverstone CE Primary School

The Academy Governance Committee (AGC) have delegated responsibility for admissions in our school and are therefore responsible for all admissions.  All places are allocated in accordance with our Admissions Policy which you will find on the right hand side of this page. 


New Reception Intake 

Children are able to start at Silverstone CE Primary School in the September following their 4th birthday. Applications for reception can be made in the autumn term. The deadline is 15th January.

Applications must be made through the local authority where you live.

There is a 'Welcome to Silverstone CE Primary School' video on the Gallery page on this website which gives you a good insight in to life at school. We strongly encourage prospective parents to visit our school.  Please contact the school office to arrange a mutually convenient time to visit. 


In-Year Admissions

If you are interested in joining our school and would like to arrange a visit please contact the school office on 01327 855100.

We are part of the West Northamptonshire Council in year scheme, which means applications must be made via the local authority rather than directly to the school. You can do this online here: Move school during the year


How to Appeal for a Place at Silverstone CE Primary

If you have applied and been refused a place at our school (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision. Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see: Appeals - The Diocese of Peterborough (

If you wish to appeal please contact and ask for an appeals pack.

The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.


Timetable for appeals - September 2021 applications

Following the National Offer Day on 16 April 2021, the deadline for lodging an on-time appeal is 9:00am on 21 May 2021.

Proposed appeal hearing dates are during the weeks commencing 21 June and 28 June 2021.

Decision letters will be sent within five working days of the appeal hearing, subject to any unforseen circumstances.
